November Updates

Union Bothers and Sisters
Recently the Company sent out communication to agents stating that as a result of our contract they will no longer provide insurance to part time employees THAT INFORMATION IS INCORRECT.
The Union has not and never has negotiated insurance for part time agents! The contract only addresses insurance for full time agents. If the company decides to discontinue insurance for part time agents that is their choice.
If you live in North Carolina there are some alternate ways to gain insurance. If you live in other states please check with your local and state representatives for similar options.

Healthcare Open Enrollment is happening now through December 15th! No matter what you may have heard, the Affordable Care Act is still alive and well, so don’t miss your opportunity to get covered. Health insurance may be more affordable than you think. Most people actually qualify for financial help to lower their health care costs.
To sign up, you can visit healthcare.gov. If you want to learn more, contact my District Office at (704) 344-9950, click here for more information, or stop by one of my satellite offices.
Each Satellite Office below will have information about Open Enrollment.
